UHW are currently part of a multicentred study looking into the practise around resuscitative thoracotomies. Data will be collected on all RTs done by the pre hospital teams and in major trauma centres over then next year.
However, there is a chance that a RT may be done outside of these settings.
In the event that a RT is done in your ED please could you let us know by scanning the QR code on the poster which will enable you to fill out the patient details for us to follow up.
For any queries please email firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
